What's New with La-Cemeteries© !

August 2018

  • The company that was hosting this site for more than 10 years was bought by another. The new company said they could not (would not) migrate this site to their hosting company. So I migrated this web site myself to a different hosting company, namely Dream Host.

    It was not a pleasant experience considering the size of this web site and it's age. Many pages quit working. Some code no longer worked at all. I have visited and checked most pages, fixing those that did not work.

    State libraries evidently reorganized the directory structure for cemetery pictures. So, those pages no longer connect. I'll run that down and fix it eventually.

    The Secretary of State's office has done it again. Three new Secretary's in a row and a new directory structure came each time. At the moment I plan to delete all links to that office. I cannot jump through their hoops at every change.

    I have concerns that Find A Grave may do the same thing when converting from their old website to their new one. So far, every thing still connects.

    Microsoft Bing Maps no longer work because of Microsoft changes for displaying Bing Maps. Unless I can find a global cure, Bing maps will become dust on this web site.

    Please send your comments about what is not working. My thanks for you taking the time to let me know.
